'''''Garcinia gummi-gutta''''' is a tropical species of ''Garcinia'' native to Indonesia. Common names include '''''Garcinia cambogia''''' (a former scientific name), as well as '''brindleberry''', '''Malabar tamarind''', and '''''kudam puli''''' ('''pot tamarind'''). This fruit looks like a small pumpkin and is green to pale yellow in color. Although it has received considerable media attention purporting its effects on weight loss, there is liver toxicity associated with commercial preparations of the fruit extract with clinical evidence indicating it has no significant effect on weight loss.
